What Indian Railways must learn from China
Introduction of new trains every year is choking the already constrained line capacity of Indian Railways.
Added to this, a slow pace of modernisation and infrastructure addition is hampering the efficiency of the Railways in terms of using its assets and traffic-handling capacity.
Busier rail traffic is not unique to India; only that there are other countries capable of easing the congestion. Statistics of International Union of Railways reveal that the network productivity of Chinese Railways is more than double of Indian Railways.
This is reflected by the transportation output data that indicates the efficiency of the line capacity utilisation of the railways.
Lalu came and made us fool. Mamta had very little time on national issues. We need the guys like late Madhav Rao Synthia and a task-master PM. Indian railways will shine, beyond an iota of doubt..
